They’re Back! (part 1)


Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people in the whole world—I mean everybody—No matter how boring they are on the outside, inside them they’ve got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands, maybe. ~ Neil Gaiman

My obsession with mushrooms began last summer and it continues! We seem to be in high season, for the past week I’ve been going on longer hikes than usual ~ I just can’t get enough of them. Each day I wonder if I’ll find a new kind or color. It just amazes me how many shapes and sizes they come in.

Calzones

Watermelon

White Ruffels

Orange Crush

Flower

Sea Scape

Sea Urchins

Micky Mushroom

Average Joe

Even finding an average joe excites me. When I search for mushrooms I feel like I’m stumbling into secret worlds. There are too many to capture all by myself. I invite you all to come visit to go treasure hunting with me. Michigan is filled with magical mushrooms!

P.S. I linked my old blog post about my obession with mushrooms as a pdf. My old blog crashed and burned but I was able to recover posts as pdf’s. The format is a bit sloppy, but I’m happy to have a record.

    Give me a whole new perspective on fungus. Lovin’ the watermelon. Like a sculpture in the garden.
